If they learn to respect a knife when they are young, it's something that will carry on to every facet of their lives, Def
I'm not much of a collector, everything has to have a practical use, because space is always at a premium around my place.
I really like small fixed blades though.
Wow it looks just like my Salt.
Have any small fixed blade bargains to recommend?
I'm OK with "normal" knives. They all have benefits (or at least should ) Besides the $2 cheapos from when I was young, I never got anything more than a Delica4 and the new Ladybug with VG10. Both nice knives, but they're all I need in the tactical department. I should mention that a big problem for me with knives is that if I spend too long looking at them, I'll end up wanting the $300+ ones, and that's just being silly (on my budget at least!). The only knives I still find myself drooling after at this point would be some nice small, old-fashioned slip-joints. I haven't started buying any, and maybe I should leave it that way! Oh yeah, the Spyderco Kiwi still looks pretty nice to me as well... Kinda a mix between modern and old-fashioned.
Well if you like VG10 you'll love the falkniven range especially the F1 and S1
I really like this one, though I don't know much about 3G steel. I'd love to see this one in VG-10.
Fallkniven makes a fine knife but they are missing the boat. Wondersteels usually go hand in hand with pocket clips. This remais the only reason that I have not bought a fallkniven yet.

They don't use pocket clips because they think they upset the ergos of the knife But at least it would be comfortable in the hand over a long period of time
My next fixed blade will be the Tom Brown Tracker II from Tops knives. I just like them. Perhaps you may want to handle one of these before buying the ontario blade. For a "survival" knife I believe that it has no equal except for the original Tom Brown Tracker.
I think my next fixed blade will be a Ontario TAK-1 but in 1095 rather than D2, has anyone got any long term experience of these
